Target just doesn’t get it.
More than 300,000 of the company’s customers have asked Target to stand up for customer safety and prohibit people from openly carrying guns in its stores, yet the company’s leaders still haven’t taken any action.
So, it’s time to turn up the heat. Maybe Target will heed our call if some of the influential moms and women who sell products on its shelves speak out.
When these businesswomen teamed up with Target, they probably didn’t expect customers flaunting semiautomatic rifles to be part of the deal.
- Jessica Alba is a mom of two, and founder of Honest Company, which started selling its products at Target just this month.
- Bethenny Frankel is a mom of one; her Skinny Girl products, including Skinny Girl Cocktails, are sold at Target.
- Rachael Ray is a celebrity chef and entrepreneur who is famous for her fast, easy, family-friendly recipes. Her line of cookware and other products are sold at Target.
Target — and its brand partners — need to know that we want a safe shopping environment for our families. If Target wants our business, its leaders need to act.
Thank you for continuing to put pressure on Target. Together, we’ll get the company’s leaders to make this right.
